Hidden in the middle of the 7ème, La Maison de Verre is a translucid glass box, with exquisite metallic structures, intricate mechanical parts and movable decors. Playing with space, light and scale, this theatrical house is an unexpected mix of engineering and poetry. Private spaces float delicately over public spaces, while work and play intercept each other fluidly. As with Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye, La Maison de Verre was conceived as a place of well-being, celebrating light and movement in a resolutely modernist way.
Closed to the public, Robert Rubin has kindly agreed to two specially guided tours of La Maison de Verre. The funds collected for the visit are dedicated to the preservation of this monument.
